OhGizmo! Review: The Puffit 2, A Discreet Personal Vaporizer

smIMG_89051

Continuing on our emerging column of vaporizer reviews, today we’ll be taking a look at the Puffit 2. It’s a personal vaporizer made to look like an asthma inhaler, in the hopes that your vaping experience will be more discreet and private. The Puffit 2 is meant for stealth vaping, when it’s socially inappropriate to light up and when other vaporizers might give you away. It’s the second generation Puffit, with our first review right here. We’ve been playing around with it for the past couple of weeks, and we’ll give you our impressions in this article. But up here in the first paragraph, what’s the quick verdict: so much better!

OhGizmo! Review: The ZEUS Thunder Vaporizer Pen

zeus-thunder-pen-vape-04

Vaporizers are all the rage these days, so we were excited to find out that ZEUS Arsenal was getting in on the action with the Thunder Pen Vape. It’s a relatively small vaping device with a cool PVD coating that’s super abrasion resistant. It measures around 6 inches in length with the wax tank attached, and about half an inch wide. Aside from being able to vaporize oils, waxes, concentrates and loose leaf herbs, it’s capable of handling propylene glycol “juices”, which turns it into a regular e-cig. That’s some pretty cool versatility. The battery is 650 mAh, which isn’t as large as some of its competitors but still lasts for a good 300-400 puffs. We’ve tested the unit for the last few weeks, and it’s quickly become our favourite way of consuming our consumables.

Read on for our full impressions.

MagicalButter Machine Makes Weed Butter For Fantastic Brownies

MB2_110V_Package__45039.1407446661.1280.1280

Making your own weed butter at home is no simple task. Your dwelling usually ends up smelling really strong, and it’s just a generally somewhat labor intensive process. Not so with the MagicalButter MB2. Looking somewhat like a teapot, you simply have to drop your herbs in, some butter, and press a button. The machine takes care of the rest, producing THC-infused butter which you’re then free to use in your various recipes. Magic cookies? Check. Magic caramel-wrapped stick of butter, Homer Simpson-style? Check.

Granted, it’s a little expensive at $175. But if you’re stayed away from baking your own magical goods because of the effort required to make the butter, here’s your solution. Incidentally, the MB2 is not restricted to making butter, but can also make oils and tinctures, is self-cleaning, and doesn’t look like anything a stoner might use. This way you can go somewhat incognito, if that’s your thing.

OhGizmo! Review: The Herbalizer Stationary Vaporizer

smIMG_65752

Over the last few months we’ve been looking at an increasing assortment of vaporizers of all shapes and price points, from the stationaries to the portables. It’s been a fascinating and eye-opening journey because we’ve come to realize just what a wide impact on vapour quality and flavour each different device has. So when we were offered the opportunity to review the Herbalizer, the most expensive vaporizer on the market, we were stoked. After all, who wouldn’t want to see what a $729 vaporizer can do? Designed by two former NASA engineers, the Herbie promises unparalleled temperature control, consistent extraction, instant heat-up times, and a host of other features that help justify its premium price. It’s billed as the “first SmartVape”, and is designed, manufactured and assembled in the USA. The company is clearly going after the Volcano, and they’ve come out with guns blazing. Did they manage? Does the Herbalizer live up to its promise? Read on to find out.

OhGizmo! Review: The Vapir Rise Stationary Vaporizer

smIMG_65212

Whenever we look at a stationary vaporizer, it’s tempting to wonder how it stacks up to the Volcano. Well, we’ve never looked at the Volcano, but we have taken a look at the Arizer Extreme Q and came away pretty impressed. But we suppose everything in life is relative, because after spending some time with the Vapir Rise (that the good folks at VaporNation were kind enough to send us) we can safely say we’ve now been blown away. The sheer quality of the materials used, the elaborate construction of the connecting elements, the inclusion of little features like a valve on the mouthpiece… all these make for a superior vaporizer at a very attractive price point. If you’re curious to know how it performs, jump right in!

OhGizmo! Review: The Ascent Vaporizer By DaVinci

davinci-ascent-burl-wood-all

The good folks at VaporNation sent us the Ascent vaporizer from DaVinci to review, and we’ve been spending the last week or so putting it through its paces. The Ascent is a portable unit with all glass tubing and a ceramic heating element that supposedly provides better tasting vapour. It also boasts a massive battery which is supposed to let you go long periods between charges. Its main claim to fame, however, is its ability to vaporize both dry herbs and oil concentrates. It’s a premium device, with a premium price. But does it live up to its claims?

Yes. It does. And we’d like to spend a few minutes telling you all about it.

The Bud Bug Will Grind Your Botanicals, Put A Smile On Your Face

bud bug

There are times when you need to grind some herbs, and there are plenty of devices for that. Most of them however are of the “badass” variety, with some kind of metal, laser etching, super blades, anodized this. The Bud Bug is the first automatic grinder we’ve come across that would also put a huge smile on your face while using it. Don’t believe us? Watch the video below until the end, it’s only 30 seconds long.

Simply insert whatever needs grinding, close it up and watch as the Bud Bug’s stupid face as it does its job, making a line of finely ground botanicals that comes out its behind. It’s a novelty item, sure, but for $35 you and your buds can have a good chuckle as you refill your vaporizers.

OhGizmo! Review: The Vapman Personal Vaporizer

smphoto 33

There are many ways that you can choose to consume your herbs, whether it’s through an old-school pipe, in a Volcano-style vaporizer, or a hand-held battery-powered inhaler-style vaporizer. The Vapman is yet another entrant in the portable vaporizer segment, and we’ve been playing with it for the last couple of weeks. We’ll give you our detailed impressions in a bit, but out here we can tell you this much: it’s an excellent vaporizer that also adds an enjoyable layer of complexity to the experience. With the Vapman it becomes somewhat less about getting the chemicals inside of your lungs, and more about your relationship with the device.

OhGizmo! Lightning Review: The Extreme Q Vaporizer

Extreme-Q-Vaporizer-2-TorontoVaporizer

So you really want to get a Volcano, but just can’t stomach the $600+ price tag? We feel you. But did you know there are other very capable alternatives that do pretty much the same thing at a fraction of the price? The Extreme Q vaporizer is a Canadian product, and promises to do everything the German-made Volcano does, and to do it almost as well. We tested the unit extensively, and we’ll quickly go over our impressions in this article. If you don’t feel like reading the whole thing, here’s the final word: almost as good as the Volcano, for a third of the price.
